Exploring Yosemite’s Great Outdoors in Summer
In summer, explore Yosemite National Park’s many miles of hiking trails of varying lengths and difficulties. The most popular trail is the one leading to the breath-taking 1,430-foot Yosemite Falls, but take a more remote trail and you might have it almost to yourself, so pack a picnic. For some more high-energy adventure sports, why not rent a mountain bike and strike out on your own for a day or join a horse riding trek out into the wilderness. Rock climbers make a beeline for Yosemite, especially for the face known as El Capitan, which can take up to ten days to ascent. If you’re a less confident climber and those just wanting to give it a go, try Half Dome instead, or take some beginner climbing lessons.

In winter, you can explore many miles of cross-country skiing trails or take to Mammoth ski area, which has some brilliant downhill skiing and snowboarding. Many of Yosemite’s adventure sport hotels have spas and pools, which are perfect for slipping into to warm up after a day in the snow.
